My Brother's Keeper

We struggle much of our lives to understand the many complexities of life and much of the time we are left wondering about them. Our routes that we choose are at best sometimes left wanting and we feel discouraged over the lack of choices presented to us, and sometimes when looking back we feel that we could have done better. 
In thinking back a few years ago we had two twin bucks that grew up around our home. We watched them grow and we felt privileged to be a part of their lives. Then one day as they came by our house we noticed that one of the bucks was blind in one eye. The brother with complete sight stayed close by to guide his injured sibling to the woods. He would stand and patiently wait for his partially blind brother to find his way to the path that his loving brother had chosen for him to go. We would watch in awe when this scenario would play out many times over. 
Just like the twin buck who watched out for his injured brother, Jesus too does that for us if we allow him to lead us. Psalm 23:1
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
Luke 12:30
"For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things.
Our paths may not always be easy, but we can have confidence that God has a plan for us and he cares for our welfare.
